Christianity Is Acquittal And Discharge From Sinful Gaol. [1]

Queen Esther: Portrait of a Christian: acquitted, discharged and very beautiful!

1)            The logicality of it will be too herculean to the intellectualism of a rational mind. Honestly, I will not be surprised if the rational intelligence stares at me to encourage me to await my journey into Alice’s Wonderland before assuming the phenomenality of a Christian’s acquittal and discharge from the erstwhile gaol of his sinful nature. It goes beyond scientific or mental ratiocinatio. It is a beneficent act of Divinity, flowing from His sacred heart of eternal clemency.

                Adam probably never knew of divine grace and that he could approach the LORD God from the stance of His river-flowing mercy, which explains his taking-off-fright that got them hiding, stupidly, behind the fig tree. And arrested by an egregiousness of mortification, Lucifer could not believe the continued existence of the pristine parents. They had sinned and should be cut off from terra firma. He remembered the Scripture that said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” Why they still lived was too much of a mystery for his apprehension.

Jehovah, the preeminent fashion Designer clothed them in His righteousness (Genesis 3:21)

                It was understood when, after all said and done, this happened,Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them” [Genesis 3:21]. They who are guilty, and to whom justice demands hellish gaol of eternal punishment, death, that is, are here seen clothed: in divine righteousness. Unbelievable! That clothing was probationary. It was the temporary raiment of righteousness. How did God do it? The LORD God of creationism used His sovereignty to suspend Adamic death in hell. Adam was provided with an inexplicable second chance. The truth, Adam, is not because of you; it is on account of what the LORD God wanted to effectuate for Himself. The consummation of which will become a phenomenal glare when the LORD God will team up with this same Adamic nature –in the perfection of the hypostatic union—  to die the redemptive death on the cross of Golgotha.

                What do I mean by the phenomenality of this glare? It was not a supposedly discerning Jew –who had a walking experience with Jehovah— that voiced the asseveration; rather it was an unconcerned Gentile, an idol worshipping Roman soldier who saw what everybody saw, as well, and acknowledged, “Truly this man was the Son of God” [Mark 15:39]. This One on the condemned cross, and not the killed ones of Eden forgiveness, is the true Pascal Lamb. Amen. His death set in motion of the acquittal and the discharge of Christians from eternal damnation. Jesus takes all the glory and praise and the culminating latria. Does it not say, “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen” [Romans 11:36].

The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit are one in thought, will, deed and might.

                If theological establishment makes, “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30) appropriately of Jesus, then, it is apropos to exegete that “of, through and to” Jesus are all things. Scriptural lucidity unveils the Christians’ Advocate. Every guilt finds its establishment in the legality of an extant decree. It takes an eternal Entity to stand in advocacy before the Eternal Judge of the celestial assizes. The eternal Father’s adjudication was the Christian’s acquittal of the committed evils of his sinful nature. Jesus, the eternal Advocate, made the incontestable scriptural veridicality of, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” [John 5:24].

                An exegesis of this verse prompts me to start with the key word ‘believeth,’ the Greek of which is pisteuō (pist-yoo’-o): ‘1. Used in the NT of the conviction and trust to which a man is impelled by a certain inner and higher prerogative and law of soul. 2. To trust in Jesus or God as able to aid either in obtaining or in doing something: saving faith.’ Faith in the finished work of the cross is the only recipient’s requirement to obtain this empyrean grace of eternal consequence. Check out the verse, and contextually, and you will find no strings of moral rectitude attached to aid the consummation of this scriptural facticity.

Free from guilt of the Adamic sin is the Christian.

                It is quite interesting to note that the verbal ‘Shall’ and ‘come’ of John 5:24 are the same Greek erchomai (er’-khom-ahee) ‘to go or return.’ Understand the facts here: if the non-positive ‘not’ is ou (oo), meaning: ‘the absolute negative,’ then the eternal absolution of Christians from spiritual condemnation has a guarantee of Scripture. Coming to an understanding of ‘shall’ and ‘come’, what the LORD from heaven says in this verse is that, the one who believes in, and receives Jesus as Lord and Saviour “in returning will absolutely not return, ever, into condemnation.” Amen! ‘Condemnation’ is krisis (kree’-sis): ‘a separating, sundering, separation, trial, damnatory judgment’. ‘Passed’ is metabainō (met-ab-ah’-ee-no) ‘to pass over from one place to another.’ A very good definition of ‘life’, zōē (dzo-ay’) is: ‘of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic “logos” and to Christ in whom the “logos” put on human nature.’ The Christians have moved from the condemned, hellish gaol of the sinful nature to a justified state of life which the logicality of philosophy cannot explain: assuming an eternal life of the Almighty Creator Himself. Should this be a marvel in the eyes of beholders, it is because it happens to be the doing of the Divinity. Amen.

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

IS THE MARIAN BIRTH THE FIRST EXISTENCE OF JESUS CHRIST? (Part five)

Who could have known that this young boy walked in the cool of Eden days?

(…continued from part 4…)

5)            Why worship the manifestation of the Divinity? They were told in the wilderness, “Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 21) Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him” [Exodus 23:20-21]. Before then, in Exodus 14:19 “And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:” is understood by them that the LORD and His manifestation are the Elohiym. The Spirit of God, no doubt, made them to use this particularity of ‘ı̂ysh in reference to their Visitant.

Manoah and his wife, prior to Samson.

                It dawned on them why they continue to choose ‘ı̂ysh among other forms of ‘man’: the One on visitation was He, who told Abraham, “Your children will be my children and I will be their God.” As their God, Jehovah is their Husband, by an oath of covenant. He called His name ‘secret’ simply because none but the Most High must perform wondrous miracles. He is pâlîy all because He is past finding out. They wanted to make Him honourable, who is the Lord of lords and the King of kings. Note that this angel of the LORD did not object to being offered a gift. The gift to prophets and priests are money and victuals to take care of body and soul. When it comes to the LORD God of Israel, it is a sacrifice (which the angel of the LORD accepted).

The LORD visited Manoah and his wife before the birth of Samson.

                This Visitant is the only One to receive sacrificial elements and when it was offered He rode on it to heaven, accepting the oblation. No scriptural angel accepts the object of immolation. So, you ask, “Why worship the manifestation of the Divinity?” The answer is found in no other place than the Bible. “And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle. 9) And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses. 10) And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door” [Exodus 33:8-10]. This is what they know and must do. Amen! The Eternal Father will hide Himself from Adamic gaze. That is very necessary, in order not to destroy, for sighting the slightest sin. Jesus Christ is the only One among the Trinity who must receive Adamic gaze, so that He will stand as the Saviour that He truly is. They worshipped the pre-incarnate manifestation of Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord.

I beseech thee, shew me thy glory

                What the ocular expression of Moses fell on was the most awe-inspiring phenomenality that has ever received an occurrence anywhere, anytime in the universe. “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21) And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: 22) And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: 23) And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen” [Exodus 33:20-23]. This is what prompted the divine granting of this request by Moses, found in Exodus 33:18, “And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.” Jehovah is a God of legality. He is the ultimate Judge. His judgment, posing a nature of eternality, those who will approach God the Father must be given an opportunity to seek spiritual regeneration. The first Adamic object of perception was his Creator, Christ, the LORD God, without whom there was not anything made that was brought into creation (John 1:3).

Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live

                They neither saw the Holy Spirit nor the First Member of the Godhead, the Father. But the object of the Mount Sinai ocular encounter of documentation was the very nature of the Divinity seated eternally on the empyreal throne! Christ Jesus is indeed one with the Father (John 10:30). To see the eternally probing visage of Christ in its true nature would have seen to the termination of the ministry of Moses. The first thing that the approaching LORD God did was to choose the place of engagement. Secondly, He used His tender holy hand to cover the sins of Moses and at the same time hide His judging face. His eternal visage is too much for human beholding; the anomalous tiniest bit of sin cannot survive the beholding of this eternality of purest sinlessness! It will most definitely stand in antagonism, unbeknown to the beholding anomaly. This Sinai phenomenon underscores the grace of the Divinity of Christ in His preincarnate manifestation. The divine palm of protection against the legality that would have destroyed Moses has four fingers plus a thumb: five –the number of grace. Moses did nothing to receive that protective grace. It was purely an act of divine sovereignty. Are we not saved by grace? Selah! 

Get born again. Say this simple prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

JESUS: The WORD Of God (What does it betoken?) Part 2

The most enigmatic Man to tread the surface of terra firma

(Continued from the 1st part)

2)            The One who was set up –from when? Proverbs 8:23 has the answer, “I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.” The same is in John 1:2 “The same was in the beginning with God.  The Word of God, Jesus, is as eternal as the Father. Amen! The scriptural ‘beginning’ is, in actuality, before creationism. Jesus was in the beginning. Only God can be said to be in existence before creationism. Amen! “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made(John 1:3). This is one of my favourite scriptures; the Elizabethan flowery is so aesthetic, and the gospel truismatic reality is of Jesus, the grand Author of creationism.                                                  

Before Abraham was, I Am

                Did He create all things? Does that not serve pellucidity of the facticity of Christ, the Word of God, not being a creation? If He created all things then the absolute truth is that nothing created Him. No wonder He dropped the bombshell of John 8:58 “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” Most certainly to the English grammar student, ‘was’ is a grammatical inflection of ‘am’ but it is not so from the Greek couched grammar. ‘Was,’ in the Greek, is ginomai (ghin’-om-ai), meaning: ‘1. to cause to be (“gen”-erate) 2. (reflexively) to become (come into being).’ This ginomai  is a pointer to the natural parturiency of Abraham’s coming into being. The personal pronoun ‘I’ is ego (eg-o’) ‘(emphatically, of the first person) I.’ ‘Am,’ eimi (ei-mee’), means ‘I exist {used only when emphatic}.’ Put ego and eimi together, what you have, staring unbelievably at you is the covenant name, I AM THAT I AM, which the Almighty God gave to Moses at the ‘burning bush’ encounter. Jesus is the I AM, which the Jews could not believe, seeing that He was not yet 50 years of earthly age!                                                                                           

                “In him was life; and the life was the light of men[John 1:4]. The preposition ‘in’ en (en) means: ‘a primary preposition denoting (fixed) position (in place, time or state), and (by implication) instrumentality (medially or constructively), i.e. a relation of rest.’ The inconsequentially looking ‘was’ is ēn (ane): ‘Imperfect of eime -I exist-; I (thou, etc.) was (wast or were).’ The grammatical imperfectness of this verb makes it an action of eternal continuity. ‘Life’ is the God’s kind, zoe. In Jesus is an original and essential life, independently of none. As the eternal Father has His own life and the Holy Spirit too, each of His own, so does Christ. Jesus’ life, as the definition of ‘was’ explains, is absolutely eternal! The life which Jesus breathed into created entities illumed them. This light does not just endow with a visive authority. It creates a rational knowledge by which an intelligence is displayed by the individual. This True Light gave Adam the knowledge of what to name creatures such that every name he gave needed not be reviewed by the Creator. Every intelligent being thirsts for salvation. Many, unfortunately, reject the leading of this spiritual Light –into eternal damnation. The sole source of life celestial and mundane life flow from the Word of life, Word of God, even Jesus Christ. Only God can give life thus. Amen!                                                                                                                 

Jesus, the Light of the world.

                “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world(John 1:9). The original couch is “every man coming into the world.” The verb ‘comethis an imperfect tense. John 12:46 quotes Jesus Christ saying, “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.” The word ‘darkness’, skotia (skot-ee’-ah) speaks of ‘spiritual obscurity, metaphorically used of ignorance of divine things, and its associated wickedness, and the resultant misery in hell.’ So, we have in verse 12, But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:His name is so precious that it is the only key to salvation.

                Hear Him in John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” Nowhere in Scripture is any creature’s name is given the authority to be “believed on” save Jesus Christ the eternal Saviour. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God [John 1:13]. The will of the Son is essentially of the eternal Father’s. The reason for this facticity is not farfetched: for He made the asseverative “I and my Father are one” [John 10:30]. Selah!

The Lamb is the Lion of Judah

The Christmas Story (Part three)

The wise men worshipped Jesus

3)            The Christmas story is of heaven reinstating Adam to his dominion role. Power must change hands. And seeing an imminent abscission of the spiritual power (i.e. of spiritism) that protects the global political hegemony of Satanism, Herod became very jittery. An arrangement to surcease God’s intention preoccupied Herod’s demonic stance. God is always steps ahead of His enemies. The wise men who had by then come to the understanding of the incarnation that must precede the practicality of soteriological design had no problem, whatsoever, obeying the instruction of Matthew 2:12 “And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.”

                Why did they give the Baby Jesus gifts of gold, and frankincense, and myrrh?

                Gold signifies royalty. They asked, in Matthew 2:2, “Where is he that is born King of the Jews?” Prophet Isaiah made a vaticination of, “…and the government shall be upon his shoulder…” To Pilate’s, the governor’s, question of Matthew 27:11, “Art thou the King of the Jews?” the Bible says, “And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.” John 18:37, “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” Of the same Jesus it is written in Revelation 19:16, “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

AND WITHOUT HIM WAS NOT ANY THING MADE THAT WAS MADE [John 1:3].

                The sovereignty of Christ is one and the same as that of the First Member of the Godhead, God the Father. Psalm 22:28, “For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations.” The word ‘nations’ is gowy (go’-ee) (rarely (shortened) goy {go’-ee}) ‘1. a foreign nation 2. (hence) a Gentile 3. (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts.’ Even foreign nations, represented by the wise men will come under the sovereignty of Jesus. “For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. 8) God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness” [Ps 47:7-8]. Who is this in the prophetic utterance of Daniel 7:14 “And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” It is none other than the One who would destroy the Antichrist. Jesus Christ! Is it not for this reason He came to the world at Christmas?

The annunciation commenced His earthly sojourn

                Zechariah 14:9 says, And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. Revelation 11:15, And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. Who is the ‘Lord’ in this verse, and who, if I may ask, is the Christ? Can they be One individual? They are the First and the Second Members of the Godhead. The Scripture, through the Divine Logos, revealed Them in this rhema, I and my Father are one [John 10:30]. While the definition of ‘are,’ esmen (es-men’) is: ‘we are,’ [indicative of first person plural of eime –exist– is the same as the ‘am’ in Jehovah’s “I AM”]; the noun ‘one’ is heis (heis`) is a neuter gender, meaning, ‘one thing, essence.’ Jesus is of the same essence as the unseen God the Father. The Christmas story is about the Incarnation (of the Most High Jehovah).

Which was, and which is, and which is to come, the Almighty –JESUS.

                The Christmas story is about Jesus, “…ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting [Micah 5:2]. ‘From of old’ is the Hebrew qedem (keh’-dem) (or qedmah {kayd’-maw}) ‘1. the front, of place (absolutely, the fore part, relatively the East) or time (antiquity) 2. often used adverbially (before, anciently, eastward);’ and ‘from everlasting’ is `owlam (o-lawm’) (or lolam {o-lawm’}) ‘1. (properly) concealed, i.e. the vanishing point 2. (generally) time out of mind (past or future) 3. (practically) eternity 4. (frequentatively, adverbially, especially with prepositional prefix) always.’ Only God, I believe, can be said to proceed from eternity past.

                Get born again to receive the free Spirit of Christmas. Say this prayer of salvation:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”

ISAIAH CHAPTER NINE VERSE SIX (three)

(Continued from part two…)

(3)          No created being boasts of the capacity or any capability to containerise all the treasures of God’s wisdom and knowledge in him (Colossians 2:3). Impossible! The Bible tells us how Christ is able to bring into possibility that which is inconceivably tenable. The scripting of Proverbs 8:22, “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old:” is a poetical stunt that has been garnished with a heavy dose of metaphors. I have continued, in my reiterative theological stand, to say that if He had to create any attribute of His divinity before creationism then God’s essential deficiency calls His Almighty essence to question. Wisdom, which has been treated with pure aesthetic grandiose of rhapsodic nuances, is, in fact, a Personage. “Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him” [Proverbs 8:30].

 The most Enigmatic Personage: JESUS.

                The words ‘one brought up’ is ‘âmôn (aw-mone’): ‘in the sense of training; skilled, that is, an architect.’ Who was training who, how and for how long? Verse 22 made the likes of, the 4th century, Arius to believe that Christ was a created being by its poetical construction. Being brought up with the Eternal Father gives a dramatic picture of two growing up brothers poetically. This is the perfection of intimacy of Divinity! Amen. How could a contemplation of the growing up of the Eternal Father and the Almighty Son ever be made to run through any mind? It can only be sponsored by an incursion of Satanism.

 Three PERSONS in one GOD

            El gibbôr is the Hebrew for ‘mighty God,’ (Isaiah 9:6) where ‘God,’‘êl (ale) is: ‘strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity).’ Gibbowr (ghib-bore’) (or (shortened) gibbor {ghib-bore’}) ‘1. Powerful 2. (by implication) a warrior, tyrant.’ Theologically, this El gibbôr is none other than the Architect of creationism. Not even the great kahuna, Lucifer himself, has the adjectival epithet of ‘mighty’ accorded to his deified sobriquet in Scripture. None but Jehovah has ‘mighty’ describing His Deity. Some of the translations of El gibbôr are: ‘The prevailing or conquering God,’ ‘God the mighty One’ and ‘God the mighty man.’ Isaiah 45:24 reads, “Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.” The ‘LORD’ in capitals is Yahweh or Jehovah.

                Who is this in Jeremiah 23:6, “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” This is Jesus Christ, the ‘mighty God’ of Isaiah 9:6! Of the same One we hear the Father swore in categoric terms: “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre” [Psalm 45:6]. Confer these scriptures: Isa 45:24; Isa 45:25; Psa 45:3; Psa 50:1; Jer 23:5; Joh 1:1; Joh 1:2; Act 20:28 & Rom 9:5.

 HE IS FAITHFUL!

                ‘Everlasting,’ in Isaiah 9:6, is ad (ad) meaning: ‘perpetuity, for ever, continuing future.’ ‘Father,’ ‘âb (awb) means: ‘father of an individual; of God as Father of his people.’  As Abi ad, the Hebrew epithet for ‘everlasting Father,’ the Christ is ‘the Father of eternity’ or ‘The Father of the everlasting age.’ How does this revelation not mark Him as “Wonderful,” when He who is “a child,” is yet the “everlasting Father?” John 10:30 quotes Him in the revelation of “I and my Father are one.” John 14:9, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” As far as creationism is concerned, the joint participation of the Trinity makes each One the Father.

            Jesus, as the Prince of peace, is the potentate ruler of absolute peace. Only God can sit as the Governor of perfect peace. The Isaiah 9:6 title of ‘Prince,’ śar (sar) is: ‘a head person (of any rank or class).’ ‘Peace’ is shâlôm (shaw-lome’): ‘safe, that is, (figuratively) well, happy, friendly; also (abstractly) welfare, that is, health, prosperity, peace.’ A halcyon millennium rule of true tranquillity over the entire globe falls within His capability as the overall God, blessed forever. Amen. His Lordship is over the elements, circumstances, men and even the brutish animals.

                Isaiah 11:6-10 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7) And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8) And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. 9) They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. 10) And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.” Amen. (Of the Prince of peace are: Joh 14:27; Act 10:36; Rom 5:1-10; 2Co 5:19; Eph 2:14-18; Col 1:20; Col 1:21 & Heb 13:20).

                Where else, if not in the Prince of peace, can we say with all assurance that: “Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other” [Psalm 85:10]. In Jesus, Shiloh, the Tranquilizer, we have peace. Peace that passes all understanding. Amen!

  Yes! It is! Amen!  

                Get born again. Say this prayer, meaning it:

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
